    One can clearly see the man running away with his arms out and the police, in a busy intersection shooting at him.

    Had they hit a woman or child, I doubt we would even be having this discussion.


    Well, you are wrong.. but I will say.. The fact that we have this video in slow motion and zoomed in and still can't agree... is proof that the cops can be expected to be even far less certain in real time as to what he was doing.

    Video is at a certain resolution, cops dealt with and saw the dood, I'm sure they saw more than us. That said, once the rounds started firing the first time, continuing to pull the trigger becomes less of a concious thought process.

    Homeless man shot dead by Pasco Police for 'threatening behavior' | Daily Mail Online

    Small update. Apparently the initial call was regarding the guy throwing rocks at cars.

    I like how this proves how unreliable the eye witness accoutns are. I believe they all indicate that he was shot while running away, with at least two indicating he was shot in the back. Since we have video, we know those are incorrect statements.

    I imagine it's similar to what occured with Michael Brown. He was initially running, turned around, and the cop, (likely) legitimately scared, shot him. It didn't register to those witneeses either that Brown had turned around - which we know he did based on the forensics.

    Uhm.... we already knew this.

    Forensic science can sort that out.


    From your link:


    It's the fourth fatal shooting involving a Tri-City police officer in Pasco in the last six months

    Officers have been cleared of any wrongdoing in all three previous cases





    so wait, most police never use thier service weapon, most never draw it in thier entire career, this guy has killed three others? I bet it was the guy in the front.


    This is something we should look into more, no?

    I hadn't seen that indiciated before. Someone earlier in this thread also indicated that the reason for the officers to show up was unknwon. Shrug. I may have just missed it.

    To go along with your misreading of what the guy was doing when he turned around...

    They are not saying this is the 4th shooting involving this specific officer. They are saying it's the 4th shooting from a cop in Pasco. They then say officers have been cleared - so there was clearly more than one officer invovled.

    Wrong. He shifts his grasp and lifts his leg.
    Of course he is going to continue to engage in the same behavior he was already engaged in.

    Nonsense is correct. There was no pleading.
    And yes, we know that is what it looks like to you.
    Again. He shifts his grasp on the object in his hand and lifts his leg. That is indicative that he is going to throw something.
    And the fact that he had already been engaged in the behavior of throwing, it is far more likely that is what he is attempting to do. Not pleading.

    Yeah, I see the same. Seems pretty obvious to me too. Like he's going into a pitcher's motion to throw something (likely a rock).
